The grant portions are financed by the grant donor but not by the Danish State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme Agency (as is the case for the ordinary study grant portions on the BSc and MSc programmes). They are called PhD grant portions because this kind of remuneration is regulated and described in the Executive Order on the State Educational Grant and Loan Scheme in Denmark (SU-bekendtgørelsen), and because the value of a PhD grant portion corresponds to the value of an ordinary Danish study grant portion. Students are awarded 48 PhD grant portions during the period of their MSc and PhD studies.
48 PhD grant portions at DKK 6,090 each, corresponding to DKK 292,320 (approx. €38,975).

'Duty work'
As a supplement to the PhD grant portions, the student may, in accordance with the collective agreement of the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC), be offered 'duty work'. In the period up to the completion of the MSc programme, students performing 'duty work' are paid by the hour. UCPH has decided to offer students on integrated MSc and PhD schemes 150 hours of 'duty work' per year during Part A of the programme (until two years of the combined programme of study remain). 'Duty work' during Part A if it has a duration of three years: 450 hours at a rate of DKK 216.14 (+ 12.5% holiday pay), corresponding to DKK 109,418 (approx. €14,580)
For further information about Part A please see: http://www.science.ku.dk/english/research/phd/studystructure/integratedphd/.

Salary in accordance with the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional
Associations (AC)
In the period after the completion of the MSc programme, the student is employed as a PhD scholar and is remunerated in accordance with the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC). The scheme is arranged in such a way that students graduate from the MSc programme at a time when there are two years left of the integrated programme. For this reason, the salary must be paid for a period of two years in accordance with the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations (AC). The amounts specified include a supplement locally agreed upon as well as pension contributions: Salary as a PhD scholar: 24 months at a rate of DKK 30,883 (including pension contributions and supplement), corresponding to DKK 741,210 (approx. €98,800).

330050996One New PhD Scholarship at JustSites, iCourts, Faculty of Law, University of CopenhagenRobot JustSites, an ERC funded project in iCourts (Centre of Excellence for International Courts) Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, is looking for a talented PhD candidate to be part of a larger, collective research team. The three-year PhD scholarship is fully funded. In particular, we are looking for innovative and original ideas that combine law and other related disciplines with the goal of producing new knowledge on international criminal justice. Successful candidates can start 1 October, 2019. About a PhD at JustSites The Global Sites of International Criminal Justice (JustSites) is a new research project (begun January 2019) funded by a Starting Grant (StG-802053) awarded by the European Research Council (ERC). Using a multi-disciplinary approach, the collective research project pushes beyond courts to investigate the larger formation of sites that collectively structure and give direction to international criminal justice and its battle to end impunity for international crimes. JustSites studies the constellation of localities in which international criminal justice is produced, received and has impact. Building an innovative scientific vocabulary, the project understands the justice sites to be localities in which the political, legal and professional activities that collectively create international criminal justice are developed. The justice sites include locations in which forensic exhumations are carried out, NGO offices in conflict zones, foreign ministries, private law firms, media outlets, academic research centers, and the international criminal courts. These sites are closely related, and all depend on and compete with each other to define the direction of international criminal justice. Together they form a constellation of sites that drives developments in this field of law. It is this constellation that is the research object of JustSites. With its analysis of the constellation of justice sites, the project moves beyond the conventional focus on courts and their context to investigate instead the balances of authority and power that affect the relations between the justice sites. We are looking for a PhD student who can define his her own project within the larger framework of JustSites and can contribute to the wider research endavour. In particular we are interested in critical and empirically embedded projects that can study the function of specific justice sites and their relation to other localities in which international criminal justice is produced and has effects. As such, we invite applications that target the role of specific justice sites in the larger constellation or the power relations between specific sites of justice. The JustSites project is run by Principal Investigator, associate professor Mikkel Jarle Christensen and shares important research infrastructure with iCourts. iCourts strives to be the globally leading hub for research on international courts and their impact on law, politics and society. The centre s research is marked by curiosity: It is problem-driven, and often uses empirical and interdisciplinary approaches, including a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods. JustSites generally follows this problem-driven approach, but pushes empirically and theoretically beyond the courts to investigate them as just one site or institution in a larger field of practice, symbolism and power. The iCourts Doctoral Training program The PhD recruited for the JustSites project will be enrolled in the Faculty of Law s general doctoral training programme. Some of the requirements will however be fulfilled by participating in a specific iCourts research training programme that includes an intensive summer school. The Faculty s training programme provides PhD students with a general set of skills for developing their research and career, something that will also be supported by the supervisor of the PhD.
